Could Brexit affect the freedom of movement of UK airlines?
There was a slide in pre-tax profits from EasyJet yesterday. Airlines are concerned the triggering of Article 50, the mechanism which formally starts Brexit negotiations with Brussels, could put the Open Skies agreement at risk. Carriers such as Ryanair and IAG, the owner of British Airrways, have urged the UK government to preserve the agreement, or otherwise, risk hurting UK airlines. Share Radio's Matt Cox heard from Aviation Industry Commentator Julian Bray to find out more about Open Skies and why there is so much concern.

Morning Money: Brexit caused headwinds for UK airlines - so why is Jet2 creating 1000 new jobs?
There are some new headwinds for UK airlines one way or another. Ryanair boss, Michael O’Leary, has said he expects Brexit to cost the no-frills airline 5 million passengers next year, as he predicted the UK would end up looking “pretty stupid”. Easyjet meanwhile has remained silent on market talk of a possible bid. But bucking the trend, holiday airline Jet2.com has announced plans to create almost 1000 new jobs: hiring in pilots, cabin crew, and engineers starting in September to work from eight regional airports. Is this a a savvy move or a mistake? Matt Cox has been scoping out the airline sector with John Grant, Partner at aviation data and analysis specialists MIDAS Aviation.

Morning Money: Car companies are hitching a ride to the future of driverless taxis
Ford has announced plans to mass-produce a fully autonomous self-driving car by 2021, which will most likely be available to customers as part of an Uber-like ride-sharing service. They're not the first company to head down the ride-sharing road. A series of brands have invested in taxi technology companies with the hope of one day going driverless - Toyota and Uber, VW and Gett, and General Motors and Lyft. So how likely is it that driverless taxis could become reality? Joe Aldridge spoke to David Bailey, Professor of Industry at Aston Business School, to find out.
